I have nautilus manage my desktop. But unfortunately there is neither a desktop nor a nautilus icon showing up as "window" icon.

This looks a little bit weird, because I also use the global menu to the right of the icon and the gnome application menu to the left.

If there is no icon, the space between the application menu icon and the global menu is twice as wide, bacause the window title applet is still there but uses no space ...

Also it would be nice to have an option to display the application name instead of the window title (like on MacOS X)

Would be nice to see this implemented in the near future - Aug 01 2012

In the long term I plan to completely rewrite the theme to separate the "shrink it" part from the osx lookalike part. Basically the idea is to have all the "shrink code" in a separate theme, that can be included in any theme file and enable the slimmer interface.
Additionally I want to perfect the overall look of the theme, eg nautilus, evolution, firefox. Currently I'm relatively satisfied with the theme, but there are many graphical glitches I want to get rid of.

To accomplish all this, I think I have to rebuild the theming part from scratch. This perhaps will take a few months or so, because currently I simply don't have enough time.

If your are willing to help continue this project, best will be to simply dig into the gtkrc code and look how thinks work. You will see that there are plenty of "hacks", eg for all the 4 different types of comboboxes which all look and work a little bit different. Perhaps you can identify dead code, that doesn't do anything or stuff like this.

Regarding distribution, you could research on how to make deb files or even provide a PPA or stuff like this, as the current method of supplying a tar.gz is not the best thing.

Furthermore, if you have any ideas for improving the look of a certain app just drop me a mail. - Jul 30 2010
@pablomoreno: now nautilus-elementary is working here but I don't see the problem as you described it!

Look at the screenshot:

The metacity border has the color #e5e5e5, the window background directly below the window border has exactly the same color. Even if I disable gnome-globalmenu to display the menubar inside the window, there is no problem with the colors.
Btw, the toolbar/menubar uses a very soft gradient - maybe that's the problem?

I installed the elementary-nautilus ppa but it seems that the rgba_colormap key is not supported. I created a bool and set it to false - no effect. Somewhere I read that I have to use use the current sources and compile it. Did that as explained in, but nautilus crashes on startup with this error message: ... nautilus_window_sync_clutter_toggle: assertion failed:; (GTK_IS_ACTION (action))

Provide the deb/ppa you're using and I'll try to fix the theme. Btw, I used the am_monkeyd/nautilus-elementary-ppa - maybe that's the wrong one? - Mar 07 2010
So, I looked into this and I'm sorry but I don't think that I can fix this.
The problem is, that the guys who compiled this nautilus elementary did change something in the code that makes the toolbar and the sidebar header transparent (look at the red marked spots on this screenshot:

But perhaps there is a way to compile it yourself and remove the transparency. - Feb 21 2010
At the beginning of the gtkrc file there is a line starting with "gtk-icon-sizes =". Simply remove the entire line and all icons should be using your custom settings. - Feb 17 2010
Oh, I see. The font and its size is fixed (by intention). It only possible to change it by editing the .gtkrc file in within the theme folder.

It might be possible (for me) to create a theme that completely applies the Gnome font settings. I'll look into this and if possible update the theme. - Feb 16 2010
It's fine that it works under other distros as Ubuntu. But as I only tested it in Ubuntu, I can't state that it's working everywhere.

Btw, you need Lucida Grande to make it work correctly. - Feb 09 2010
I know that Ubuntu != Gnome!

But I use Ubuntu, because it's the most widespread distributed (afaik) --> more support in forums etc.
Furthermore, I think that Debian has only (very) old packages because of security and stability reasons - correct me if I'm wrong here.

I don't think that Ubuntu is as bad as you state in your comment. But you're true, I never installed Debian.

Btw, can't you should be able to use the theme in Debian as well. If not, report back why and I will try to fix the theme. - Feb 08 2010

most of the widgets are smaller than in "normal" gtk themes. But the buttons on the bottom of the window are still fat! Is there any chance to really decrease the size of ALL buttons? - Mar 22 2010
